If you’re feeling bummed about having braces then this article’s for you. It’s a list of 7 great reasons why you should embrace your braces. Braces are something a lot of people would like to have simply because of the way they look. Let’s talk about what advantages having braces offers you so you can feel better about yourself NOW.
1. Braces Look Fresh and Youthful
If you’re a young teen you may not appreciate this because you want to look older but believe me when I say the day will come when you want to look young. Braces just give you this fresh, youthful vibe. It’s a sweet look that captures the fact that you’re on the path to adulthood and this’s one of the last parts of your childhood. Don’t be afraid to show your braces, either. The chances are high that they look great on you.
2. They Highlight Your Smile
Braces do call attention to your smile. While this may not be what you want in the very beginning, it’s going to become a really great thing. It doesn’t take long for braces to begin to do their work. Before too long, your teeth are going to be straight and a beautiful smile is emerging. Don’t wait until the braces come off before you show it off!
3. Your Teeth Look Very Clean
I’m not sure why it is but people with braces usually have teeth that look very white and clean. I do think that some colors of rubber bands can enhance this. Silver and pale blue both tend to have a whitening effect. Also, you’re usually very devoted to giving your teeth the best care when you’ve got braces and your teeth thank you for it. It’s a nice fringe benefit, isn’t it?
4. It’s Fun to Change Your Rubber Bands for Different Occasions
I’ve always thought it would be very fun to get to choose different rubber band colors for different occasions. Of course, I was one of those people that always thought having braces would be kind of fun. I got stuck with a boring retainer that you couldn’t do anything with like change the color up at each visit. You can match your bands to you prom dress, a holiday or just your favorite colors!
5. You Get to Watch a Transformation as Your Teeth Change
Having braces really is a journey. Your teeth transform before your very eyes. It’s kind of fun to watch the transformation take place. Make sure you take lots of selfies so you can see how they change month by month. It’s amazing that orthodontics can create such beautiful smiles, huh?
6. You’re Treated to Professional Whitening when They Come off
I think this perk is one of the best of the whole braces experience! You get to have professional whitening when your braces come off. So many people without braces would love to have professional whitening but don’t have the chance to have it done. Not only will your smile be perfect but your teeth will be so white that they’re sparkling! This’s great motivation to hang in there.
7. The End Result is Going to Be Amazing
Lastly, the whole reason that you’re wearing braces at all is reason enough to embrace them. You’re going to have an amazing smile you could’ve never had without them. Having braces can be frustrating at times. You can’t eat your favorite foods, have to go to frequent appointments and take special care of your teeth but it’ll all be worth it in the end. It’s just a small amount of time, really. And the end result will be amazing.
